WORKSHOP B

Unlocking the Power of Forensic Technology to Help Meet Your Anti-Bribery & Corruption Compliance Obligations

According to the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners, almost 50% of fraud and corruption is detected by tip-offs or by accident, while only 14% is detected by internal audit.  Why is this? With many high-risk transactions involving schemes designed to circumvent existing rules, traditional tests are typically not as effective for identifying those transactions.  For bribery and corruption, new approaches to data analytics are needed that integrate statistical analysis, anomaly detection, data visualisation and text mining. This interactive workshop will focus on utilising sophisticated anti-bribery and corruption (ABC) analytics to enhance your risk assessment and monitoring processes, helping you to increase the overall efficiency and effectiveness of your anti-corruption program and compliance initiatives.
